Review: The Lottery (Short Story)

The LotteryThe Lottery by Shirley Jackson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lottery is a great commentary on what can sometimes be the mindless adherence to tradition. Masterfully written with small yet important details popping in throughout. The tone and atmosphere that Jackson sets up belies the true depths of this dystopian society. I was awed and horrified by the ending (saying anything else would be a spoiler!).
